Library at The Dock - What's On June 14

1st June 2014

Sunday Lounge - The Wikimen

Once a month, Library at The Dock brings you an intimate musical affair with some very special guests.
This Sunday features The wikimen, an extraordinary quartet that explore music from an era of cocktails and pineapples, hookahs and hulas and trans pacific holidays.

Drawing influence from artist like Arthur Lymen, Sol Hoopii, the Mills Brothers and Robert Crumb and his cheap suit serenaders, The Wikimen bring a breath of fresh sea breeze to the styles of jazz, Hawaiian swing and exotica.
With band members emerging from groups like, Vulgargrad, Johnnie and the Johnnie Johnnies, Bombay Royale, Cosmo Cosmolino and Blue Drag, they bring a unique sound that combines ukulele, double bass, trombone, drums and outstanding vocal harmonies into a unique sound not to be missed.
